The first of these was on Friday, September 8, when over 50 adult players, partners and invited guests met in the Malthouse of the Globe, Topsham, where, following an excellent buffet meal, Charlie Penn (chairman) thanked all the captains, committee members and others for their hard work during the year. Thereafter, the following awards were presented:

Then, on Sunday, in spite of the day being showery and blustery, there was a good turn-out for the Colts Presentation Evening, which was held in the clubhouse at Bonfire Field, Topsham.

The evening started with a softball cricket match between members of the U13 squad and their parents. At the same time the barbecue was lit and the bar opened.
